Dr. Mitch Kusy, Professor of Organization Learning and Development in the PhD in Leadership and Change Program, has co-authored an article with Dr. Renee Thompson of the Healthy Workforce Institute. The article, “Has the COVID Pandemic Strengthened or Weakened Health Care Teams? A Field Guide to Healthy Workforce Best Practices,” was published in the June, 2021 issue of Nursing Administration Quarterly. The article addresses the lessons leaders can learn from the coronavirus-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic that can help them strengthen and sustain a healthy, professional, and supportive workforce culture during a crisis and beyond. Additionally, Mitch will be one of the keynote presenters at the two-day Diversity Leadership Alliance national conference in November. To be attended by over 800 leaders worldwide, Mitch’s presentation is entitled “Eroding Toxic Behaviors and Building Workplaces of Respect, Dignity, and Well-Being”. In this address, he will integrate strategies within the context of these uncertain times of racial injustices, political divides, and pandemic polarities.
